Biden Ordered to Close Southern Border He Opened

A judge ordered the Biden administration to reinstate Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy.

A major court decision serves to stifle the Biden administration’s open-borders policy. U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk has ruled that Joe Biden failed to follow the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) when he issued his order rescinding Donald Trump’s “Migration Protection Protocols” (MPP), better known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy. That was one of Trump’s most effective actions stemming the flow of illegal immigration, and it was one of the first things Biden undid.

Judge Kacsmaryk directed the Biden administration to “enforce and implement MPP in good faith until such a time as it has been lawfully rescinded in compliance with the APA and until such a time as the federal government has sufficient detention capacity to detain all aliens subject to mandatory detention under Section 1255 without releasing any aliens because of a lack of detention resources.”

Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy should never have been ignored, but it has been Biden’s plan from Day One to establish his radical leftist agenda irrespective of constitutional Rule of Law across the board.

The invasion across our southern border is one perilous example. To that end, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was recorded in a private meeting with Border Patrol agents in Texas saying what he and the Biden/Harris regime have known all along:

A couple of days ago I was down in Mexico, and I said, “Look, you know, if, if our borders are the first line of defense, we’re going to lose and this is unsustainable. We can’t continue like this. Our people in the field can’t continue and our system isn’t built for it.” … The extent of the challenge should not be understated, but nor should our ability to meet it.

Of course, Mayorkas knows full well that the real “challenge” has been opening and keeping the border wide open under the guise of “acting to secure the border in a humanitarian way.” The Biden administration has willfully and intentionally invited more than one million illegal immigrants across our southern border in his first six months — at least that’s how many were caught and mostly released. This invasion is the direct result of ignoring Trump’s border security policies. This is an impeachable offense, and Mayorkas has been complicit in this political charade from the start.

Finally, a memo to Mayorkas: Some 40% of migrants released in one Texas border town tested positive for COVID-19. With all the fearmongering from the Biden administration over the spreading Delta variant, one would think that at least this might cause the regime to consider closing up the border, if only for presenting some semblance of consistency.

Then again, considering the Biden administration’s real agenda regarding illegal immigration, working to ensure that COVID is continuously being spread throughout the U.S. via infected illegals helps to further the COVID fear and power-grabbing.
